"Chris B. Jácome joins the ranks of flamenco guitar masters..." Scott Barker-Tucson Lifestyle Magazine
“Highly recommended for fans of flamenco, nuevo flamenco, world music, or well-executed and recorded guitar music in general” –(Guitar Nine Records)
A NOTE from the artist...
"If you are familiar with my past work...namely, 'Motivación', you are in for a surprise. It will be obvious after just one listen through that I have grown enormously in my musical art. If you are a new friend I encourage you to give 'Motivación' a listen, you will not regret it. Not only will you have some more great tunes to listen to, but you will also be able to fully appreciate how much I have grown as a musician and producer to be able to create this project.
You will find so much in this CD. Treat yourself to a set of headphones to enjoy this CD with. There will be songs that you love right away, others might grow on you...and still others might grab you when you least expect. Be prepared for anything because I didn't hold back! Whatever I thought up is represented here, from udus and zarbs, to electric guitars and duets. All of it is honest and true to my heart...I am now ready for it to speak to your heart.
